Given how often the PS4 updates and the firmware updates for 8 min timeouts, is the HFC4 the way to go? It can be more trouble than it’s worth for some people to have to do firmware updates all the time, and with no guarantee for future proofing on other custom pcbs.
Padhacking a FC4 isn’t much to do and for only 29.99 on GameStop, it is very temping. Sony does QA testing only for licensed products, and the FC4 is one of them. Teyah lag test is on par, and to put it short it is one of the few that truly works “out of the box”/future-proof.
